We visited for dinner one weeknight and discovered a real gem. The place was busy with a great atmosphere but not too busy (if you know what I mean). The food portions were huge but it was all really tasty. My wife had ribs which were succulent and flavoursome. I had a burger which was well cooked and generously sized!... More

Used to bring my kids here when they were young and they still like the place. Food is OK and service is good and the the interior has been updated. Wrap up warm, because in the winter it can be cold in there. Felt the prices are slightly more than they should be.

I haven't been here for years but after hearing good things we decided to give it a go on a Wednesday evening and we weren't disappointed. Food was lovely and service was quick. Got a takeout a couple of weeks later and was lovely too! Will return!

Just had dinner at Dillingers with friends. Loved the nachos as a starter, quite a descent portion, was enough for 4 people. Most of us had the ribs with chips and one had the burger. I feel like the ribs only get better. Had the full rack tonight it was fantastic, so tasty! Had it with sweet potato chips because... More

Food is always good - highly recommend the ribs. It's also not too expensive. I imagine it would be great for families and children's parties.

I have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years. I haven't been for a little while, however I was very disappointed to see that they had changed the quality of burger sold. They are now 4oz burgers that are dry and tasteless. Due to the thin patty, they don't retain any moisture. And if you want a weightier... More
